Although Malia and Sasha have both lowkey since leaving the White House and attending college, they’ve still been great resources for the Biden girls.
Finnegan noted, “But they’ve been so nice offering advice to us and support.”
Later in the interview, Maisy shared a sweet story of former President Barack Obama coaching her and Sasha’s youth basketball team in Washington, D.C.
“There’s a lot of teams that were like, ‘This is unfair, they can’t have the president be their coach,'” she said with a laugh, “but I mean, we won.” Maisy also noted how big sports is in the Biden family and how supportive her grandfather is of all of his grandchildren’s extracurricular activities.
“He came to, like, every single one of my soccer games, lacrosse games, basketball games,” Maisy said. “And it was always funny seeing him show up when I was like, ‘I think I just saw you on TV about 30 minutes ago. How did you just end up here?’ And he was like, ‘Don’t worry, I knew it was a big game today.'” Talk about being a super granddad.
Of course, this wasn’t the only way Joe showed up for his grandkids. In fact, Maisy explained to Jenna how the president-elect stays in touch with all of them.
